The old silk workshop in Kattavia, RhodesJuly 10, 2023
For a heat wave intense, lasting 10 days, with temperatures of 40 degrees and above in the mainland, spoke today the meteorologist Panagiotis Giannopoulos, with the weather changing for the worse next week, since the mercury will climb quite a lot, creating a suffocatingly hot climate.
Specifically, Giannopoulos told ERT's weather bulletin that from July 12 to 13 the first heatwave will sweep the country for days.
At the moment they cannot predict its duration, but it looks like it will last, with current data, until at least July 22, he added

A EUROPEAN BLAZING SUMMER
Not only Greece, but Europe in general, is heading for a very hot time next week. The "heat dome" over Europe is expected to bring the strongest heatwave of the summer of 2023 so far. Parts of Iberia, in fact, will heat up to over 40 °C.
